There appears to be research that supports that magentic reversals are linked to ice ages.
Are we headed for another reversal right now? With the recent news of the magnetic north pole racing towards Russian at a rate of 40 miles per year
along with the fact that our Earth's magnetic field has fallen over 50% in the last 2,000 years could be the perfect combination to set up the next
MAGNETIC REVERSALS & THE CLIMATE
"During highlighted magnetic reversals (or excursions) the climate descended from periods of warmth...into a full blown glaciation in less than 20
Ice Age Now
1. That there is a link between magnetic reversals and ice ages is undeniable.
2. At least twelve magnetic reversals can be linked to glaciation during the last three million years alone.
3. A magnetic reversal about three million years ago marked the onset of glaciation. A magnetic reversal about two million years ago marked the
onset of glaciation. And yet another reversal about one million years ago marked the onset of glaciation.
4. The Jaramillo magnetic reversal maked the onset of glaciation, as did the Brunhes magnetic reversal.
5. The Biwa I, Biwa II, Biwa III, and Blake (at the end Eemian) magnetic reversals coincided with glaciation, and so did the Lake Mungo, Mono
Lake, and Gothenburg magnetic reversals (or excursions).
6. Many of those catastrophic cooling episodes, says Michael Rampino of NASA, may have actually been triggered by the magnetic reversal (or
THE SUN & MAGNETIC ACTIVITY
"According to Mukul Sharma, Assistant Professor of Earth Sciences at Dartmouth, the Sun displays a 100,000-year cycle of magnetic activity that
corresponds to the Earth's ice age history.
Sharma's calculations suggest that when the Sun is magnetically more active, the Earth experiences a warmer climate, and vice versa, when the Sun is
magnetically less active, there is a glacial period"
"This cycle appears to match the 100,000-year ice-age cycle first theorized by Milutin Milankovitch, which suggests that ice ages correspond to the
cyclical varations in the Earth's orbit around the Sun. (Earth & Planetary Science Ltrs, Vol. 199, issues 3-4, June 10, 2002)"
Ice Age Now
"The long cores proved beyond doubt what Emiliani had stoutly maintained — there had been not four major ice ages, but dozens. The analysis showed
cycles with lengths roughly 20,000 and 40,000 years, and especially the very strong cycle around 100,000 years, all in agreement with Milankovitch
As Emiliani, Kukla, and other specialists had already concluded several years earlier, the Earth was gradually — indeed, perhaps quite soon as
geologists reckoned time — heading into a new ice age "
American Institute of Physics
Cesare Emillani - was an Italian-American scientist, considered one of the greatest geologists and micropaleontologists of the 20th century and the
founder of paleoceanography.
He established that the ice ages of the last half million years or so are a cyclic phenomenon, which gave strong support to the hypothesis of Milutin
Milankovitch and revolutionized ideas about the history of the oceans and of the glaciations.

OCEAN CIRCULATION CHANGES
NASA Sees Arctic Ocean Circulation Do an About-Face
PASADENA, Calif. A team of NASA and university scientists has detected an ongoing reversal in Arctic Ocean circulation triggered by atmospheric
circulation changes that vary on decade-long time scales. The results suggest not all the large changes seen in Arctic climate in recent years are a
result of long-term trends associated with global warming.

It does appear that the Sun is having a hard time waking up from it's 11 year minimum cycle doesn't it?
Magnetic pole moving at 40 miles per year.
Unusual weather patterns.
Sun still quiet.

CAUSES OF ICE AGES
- The Sun's orbit around the galaxy
- Motion of techtonic plates
- Changes in wind and ocean currents
- Variations of solar output
